Pasadena Now » Crowell Public Library Presents Bill Robles, Courtroom Artist Extraordinaire | Pasadena California, Hotels,CA Real Estate,Restaurants,City Guide... - Pasadena.com

Thursday, October 6th, 7:00 p.m. Bill Robles presentation in San Marino's Crowell Public Library

Through 44 years, Mr. Robles has mastered the art of on-the-spot illustrating, working for a strict and unyielding taskmaster: television news. He has said, “I love courtroom illustrating… the immediacy… working feverishly… the adrenaline gets going and suddenly it’s over, on the satellite and around the world.”
Drawing of Charles Manson by Bill Robles.
Mr. Robles is also one of the subjects of The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art by Elizabeth Williams and Sue Russell, a book whose cover art by Robles shows Charles Mansion lunging toward the bench during his trial. As one might imagine, there are a few stories behind each illustration.
